THE OLDEST PILGRIMAGE TRAILS IN JAPAN
For over 1000 years, pilgrims and Buddhist monks have been walking the paths of Wakayama Peninsula to some of Japan’s most sacred shrines and temples in search of the purification of the spirit.
Koyasan is one of the major monastic centers, created twelve hundred years ago by Kobo Daishi, the founding monk of the Shingon Buddhist sect. Nearby, the ancient region of Kumano, another spiritual heart of Japan.
Both places are immersed in the green mountains of Wakayama Prefecture with stunning scenery, rural villages, and spectacular onsen.
MTJ offers you the opportunity to visit the two sites, both UNESCO World Heritage, for an unforgettable experience in the deep religious traditions of ancient Japan.
